heart. good luck to you guys. appreciate you coming in. >> good morning, we have lots of changes as we head into the next couple of days, today will stay cloudy with showers moving through also above average temperatures expected. we'll head close to 80 degrees for philadelphia but you can see low hanging clouds, those are sticking around, not going anywhere heading into the rest of today. we're tracking more rainfall as we push into friday and saturday so both days are first alert weather days and i'm tracking the cold coming so we will see temperatures drop from the 80s to the 60s, even possibly the 50s by the end of the week then we're tracking what is now hurricane joaquin and how that's going to affect our area. so there's some uncertainty with the track and also the timing. i'll go over the details on that but let's start with the first alert weather day which will go into effect due to the heavy downpours, windy conditions.
flooding will be a possibility and we're keeping an eye out for beach erosion. we'll start with showers today. you'll notice most of the heavy rain you heard last night has pushed offshore. we're dealing with showers moving out of the philadelphia area pushing mainly into south jersey. the northern parts of burlington county seeing this rainfall. we have more shower activity that is expected to move through along with a cold front and that's what will help drop our temperatures as we go from today into tomorrow. about 20 degrees. so that's a lot of cold air moving in. as far as futurecast goes as we go is into the rest of the day, hon and off showers then we gear up for round two. another round of heavy downpours. as we push into thursday evening heading into friday, you'll notice as you're driving home from cape may or the southern parts of delaware, we'll see another round of rainfall pushing through and that will continue into your friday morning so probably a wet commute for most locations, philadelphia and points south
and east and as we go into the rest of friday, widespread rain, heavy downpours will be a possibility and then we're going to look at how hurricane joaquin is going to affect our weather as we head into saturday, sunday, and possibly monday. so we have a lot of elements that we're dealing with here over the next couple of days so the uncertainty isn't clear but we're going to go ahead and tell you what we know. we have a hurricane one right now, wind speeds sustained at 80 miles per hour near the bahamas. and by sunday at 8:00 a.m. we expect hurricane joaquin to strengthen to cat 2k3w0ir with wind speeds closer to 105 miles per hour. then monday it looks like the hurricane stays together sand in our area. so this is what we call the cone of uncertainty. it's partly based on the spaghetti models is what we call them. these spaghetti noodles represent a model where we think hurricane joaquin will go so it's split and that's where the
cone of uncertainty comes from. we have one model that keeps hurricane joaquin well off the shoreline. this is something we'll watch and just because the models are split we don't know the timing or the path so hurricane joaquin will stay to the south and transition to the north, it should make landfall here but we're not sure where. it could go well off towards new york, it could go towards delaware, philadelphia or stay inland so this is something we'll continue monitoring for you as well. but as far as the next couple of days, the next 24 hours, you'll notice temperatures will drop 80 to 60 and then we track more rain, wet and wind eye, friday and saturday are first alert days but temperatures by friday in the mid-50s.
